Because of Covid-19, everything is different than usual and we have not had the opportunity to organize as many inspiring and educational lectures as usual. However, to celebrate the start of the new academic year, we’re organizing a documentary evening (which was set to take place last June but unfortunately had to be cancelled). Join us and watch the documentary Laboratoria on Tuesday 8 September 8pm, with an introduction by filmmaker Linda Vermaat and a Q&A afterwards.
‘Laboratoria - Code your way to a better future’ tells the story of Mariana Costa Checa (Peru) who trains young underprivileged women in Latin America to become high-end web developers. How do these women cope with the complicated training and will they land a top job?
This film is part of the documentary series ‘Fix the world and make money’ in which filmmakers Linda Vermaat and Erik Loots share inspiring stories of social entrepreneurs from all over the globe. The companies’ missions are clear, but challenging the established order is no easy task. They follow entrepreneurs on their road to success; from disillusion and despair to hope and excitement.
- Date: Tuesday 8 September
- Time: start 8pm, 7.30pm walk-in
- Language: English
Please keep in mind that due to Covid-19 we will have a limited amount of seats available. First come, first served.
